Drunken Angel

Lucinda Williams

Drunken Angel - Lucinda Williams -

Sun came up it was another day
And the sun went down, you were blown away
Why did you let go of your guitar
Why did you ever let it go that far
Drunken angel

Coulda held on to that long smooth neck
Let your hand remember every fret
Fingers touching each shiny string
But you let go of everything
Drunken angel

Drunken angel
You’re on the other side
Drunken angel
You’re on the other side

Followers would cling to you
Hang around just to meet you
Some threw roses at your feet
And watch you pass out on the street
Drunken angel

Feed you and pay off all your debts
Kiss your brow, taste your sweat
Write about your soul, your guts
Criticize you and wish you luck
Drunken angel

Drunken angel
You’re on the other side
Drunken angel
You’re on the other side

Some kind of saviour singing the blues
A derelict in your duct tape shoes
Your orphan clothes and your long dark hair
Looking like you didn’t care
Drunken angel

Blood spilled out from the hole in your heart
Over the strings of your guitar
The worn down places in the wood
That once had made you feel so good
Drunken angel

Drunken angel
You’re on the other side
Drunken angel
You’re on the other side

Sun came up it was another day
And the sun went down, you were blown away
Why did you let go of your guitar
Why did you ever let it go that far
Drunken angel
